    This event is great for introducing pinball to the young well done to all that made this happen, I watched kids play in timezone today and not only didn't they know how to start a game they thought you only got one ball then you swiped again lol but I still get a laugh when they constantly flip the flippers and the balls still in the pop bumper area :-)

    Hopefully I can make pinfest next year it looks like a fantastic event :-)

    Excellent stats there Chris, thanks for posting. Great to see more was raised for the "sids for kids" than last year.
    I wasn't surprised that all the raffle tix sold that early. Maybe next year we could have one raffled each day?? - just a thought
